NFL Rating Higher Than Game 1 of The World Series

What is happening to MLB. Maybe they should take a cue from the NFL and make all teams spend closer to equally.

We say ratings donít matter, but Ö | HardballTalk

"I canít imagine sticking through more than like 15 minutes of the MNF game if you werenít a Minnesotan or a New Yorker, and even my group of Vikings fans at the bar pretty much gave up paying attention by the third quarter. And yet Ö more people watched than tuned in for Game 1 of the friggin World Series. Oh well."

Re: NFL Rating Higher Than Game 1 of The World Series

I'm sorry, but I've lived in Baseball towns before. I still have no clue how they fill the stadium several days during the week, including noon weekday games.

Then again, there are a lot of empty seats. They play WAAAY too many games and the season is WAAAYY too long for me. I can actually follow college baseball better than MLB.

It's a sport outside of my attention span to watch for 9 innings. I sometimes catch up on games like 4th or 5th inning in, sometimes 7th. They can put me to sleep.

Seems like not long ago, TV games with 9 innings were lasting 3 to 3.5 hours. Maybe they cut that down, but they need to do something like introduce a game-clock or something because I've literally had games put me to sleep, I wake up and the game is still going on (and mostly boring).

And then there are the bad teams that will never go anywhere. Just a handful of teams make the postseason. Seems like some franchises skip the post season in 10 to 20 year intervals. I don't know how fans of those teams keep up.

Finally, I do like to actually go to a baseball game when I get a chance rather than watch baseball on TV. And although I LOVE football, I'm starting to enjoy watching football games in the comfort of my man-cave more than the hassle, headache and expense of actually going to football games.
